Jetsprint, also known as running a boat racing, is a high-speed boat racing sport in which teams of two riders race through the course, alone in the time-trial format.
The sport originated in New Zealand and later became popular as an artificial program used in Australia. The only artificial track that is currently used for all competitions jet ran.
Racecourses typical jetsprint consists of about 25 to 30 turns in both directions, at a depth of no more than 1 meter. Jet Boats used usually have a way higher capacity of 500 hp, and one lap around the course takes about 45 to 60 seconds. One member of the team steered the boat while the other acts as a navigator to guide through the course.
The competition was done in a round format. Where half the riders on one lap, based on their time, move to the next round until the final winner is decided.
There are two main classifications of jetsprint based on engine size and capacity, that is, Class A and Super Boats. Most of the competition has the race for the two classifications.
An annual World Championship event is done for the sport, which is hosted in Australia, New Zealand and the United States on a rotational basis.
